Tile roofs come in clay or concrete, and are one of the oldest materials used for roofing. There are a variety of differences between tile materials including but not limited to discoloration with age, energy efficiency, and price. The color of concrete tiles fade with time, while the color of clay tiles generally darken or stay the same, which can change the energy efficiency of the roof. In regards to price, clay tiles are the pricier option of the two.


While typically providing an old-world appearance, tile roofs can be individualized to differ in color and style. For example, tile roofs come in a variety of models such as the undulating waves seen in the classic Spanish style, or a flatter appearance found in Flat Shake, or Pantile. Tile roofs are a good option for someone who wants to make a statement with a long lasting, and fire resistant material.

Roof age should be considered when determining whether a roof needs replacement or not. In addition to this, we recommend inspecting your roof at least once a year to look for things such as cracked, warped, or missing shingles as well as signs from inside the structure such as peeling wallpaper or cracked paint. If you notice any of these signs you should call one of our roofing experts over to take a look.

This will depend on factors such as the square footage of your job, how steep your roof is, and the type of roof being installed. On average, installing a new roof takes less than one week of work, but additional time is always needed in order to pass the County’s inspection. The time an inspection takes depends on which County house we need to go to.
